I've searched the internet for Swobo jerseys (I have 4), but my passion for wool has not been satiated. Now I'm looking a D'Alessandro jerseys, but all the prices I've seen are >$100.

Does anyone know where to get good wool jerseys for less than $100?
I have never bought from them but...MB1

Those are some sweet looking retro Jerseys at Longs. Hmm, fall is coming, I could use another one.

I should have remembered them. Bought a few items from them at the Solvang century in March. I gotta get a black one...

If you're ever in France, Spain or Italy, go to some Reject or secondhand shops. I've bought old club jersey's, usually wool, by the bucketload, at 1-5 pounds each (well under $10), in the big 'cheap stuff' stores which rural France and Spain specialise in. Many are new, unused: old stock I guess. The designs are often great if you're of a 'simple graphic design' bent- typeset with that odd velvety writing and so on, on plain knits.

Failing that, the trendier secondhand shops in London have been selling the same thing to the student/fashion fraternity for years, at a markup of a few hundred percent of course, but still reasonable: I'm sure a few have made it to NY at least, if not other US cities with a slight bohemian undercurrent.

As a matter of fact, I'll be in France for September- I could pick up some more if you like, and maybe we could sort something out...
